Budget Beaches

by Sarah Tuff


A beach that stretches a couple of miles? Oh, please. Mozambique boasts 1,500 miles of sun-drenched, untouched coastline along the Indian Ocean. A few pricey lodges have staked a claim in the southern part of the country's coast, but the budget-minded know to book at Barra Lodge, a string of thatched huts between the ocean and an estuary in the province of Inhambane. Choose from the twin-bed casitas or three-bedroom cottages, which have fully outfitted kitchens to grill up the fish you can buy from locals. Horseback rides along the beach, arranged through the lodge, are just $25, while the pool, beach bar, and restaurant have the feel of a much pricier place. But, the real luxury is all that beach to yourself.

Fly Buy: Getting yourself to Johannesburg, South Africa, isn't always easy or cheap (monitor fares at www.itasoftware.com), but once you're there, Barra Resorts will arrange the $430 round-trip to Inhambane, near the lodge (27-11-314-3355; www.barraresorts.com).
